A Charmed Life

Sol Foster
Slot 7 - Sun 11am-5pm - 6 hours
SPACE FOR ANY 2 TO 6 PLAYERS

It was just a boring subway ride until a mysterious stranger on the run bursts into the car. She tells the kids the only thing that can save her -- and them! -- are magical powers none of them had any inkling of. And with that they are off on a whirlwind trip to different worlds. Can the kids learn to use their powers to save themselves -- and the Earth?

Kids under 15 years old will have first pick at this game.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
This game is set in the Lords of Gossamer and Shadow multiverse using a simplified diceless rule system. Character creation consists of determining name, description, and one thing the PC is great at, two things they are good at, one thing they are bad at, and an idea for an adventure they'd like to have. The kids are from our Earth; if they choose to be good at things that don't exist here (like magic), then they will not start the game knowing them, but will be fast learners. All PCs will have the LoGaS Warden power that controls travel between worlds, but none will know about it at game start. Contacting the GM ahead of time would be great, but probably isn't strictly necessary.

Riddles Quest

Bridgette Ruggles
Slot 7 - Sun 11am-5pm - 6 hours
3 TO 7 RETURNING PLAYERS ONLY

The Queen gave them a quest the cousins have agreed they don't want, only one is truly beholden, there are still Uncles to question, but they darn hard to find, and since the gaze into the mirrors no one has slept well. The dreams leave them tossing and turning, waking with a sense of dread but nothing but foggy nebulus visions.

The days at the manor house, with the predictable, unevadable dinner bell schedule and Wilhelmina's everywhere at once presense, seem like a very long time ago.

Shadowpact: Sentinels of Magic

James Arnoldi
Slot 7 - Sun 11am-5pm - 6 hours
SPACE FOR ANY 2 TO 7 PLAYERS

Don't call us a team. We don't have a clubhouse, secret handshake, or any of that crap. We just meet in the back of the Oblivion Bar. However, when the forces of Chaotic magic threaten the world, we've made a pact to protect it.

The Justice League of America may be great if a giant robot is attacking Metropolis or aliens invade Central City, but when you're dealing from ancient horrors from beyond reality, even Superman is vulnerable to magic.

This game is set in a new version of the DC Comics/Vertigo Universe. While familiar characters like John Constantine or Swamp Thing exist in this setting, it is not based on a particular version of the setting, so players do not need previous DC Comics knowledge. So, if you wanted to play Lucifer as seen on the Fox TV show, for example, that would be just fine.

Players will create their own unique mystical superhero or their own version of an existing DC Comics character using the Meta-X RPG system. All PCs should have a mystical origin, although not all of them will be sorcerers.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
Contact the GM before the con to create characters.

ShadowWorld Mainline (Sunday Day)

555
Edwin Voskamp
Slot 7 - Sun 11am-5pm - 6 hours
FULL

ShadowWorld is a diceless roleplaying game based in our world, except that, under the facade of media, politics, political correctnes and 'reality' there is a ShadowWorld where strange things happen: psionic powers, ancient secrets, dark conspiracies that are hidden from or dismissed by the general public. The players are psionically gifted operators of a secret organization sent on a mission. Though an ongoing world setting, it is an episodic campaign: new players are welcome.

The real world in the current day, with a few changes (e.g. Quebec, Ontario the provinces east of it became a country and, with Cuba, Ecuador and Vanuatu, formed a Commonwealth). To the public there is more terrorist acts, more military action, and, recently, more weird events (e.g. Jupiter ignited into a star, astronomers claim we skipped ahead a day in Earth's orbit, Scotland got covered in ancient forests and physically became larger, the Ark of the Covenant was found).

CONTENT WARNING: ShadowWorld involves many adult themes, in particular, if you take (your) religion seriously, playing ShadowWorld likely is not for you.

Game will run late: I hope, and will work hard to, end by 5pm. It may run as late as 6pm. I hope to end the Mainline games at ACUS big.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
If you don't have an existing character that you will play again, contact the GM by email (gm@shadowworld.org) with at least a vague idea for an outline of a concept. You can play any character with regards to background, skills, etcetera, as long as your background makes you suitable to be recruited by a US-based organization. Your character will have one or more psionic powers, have some mystical nature, or both.

World War Z. The Walking Dead. In the days and years before, we lapped up these stories of the apocalypse, of the end of society, of zombies. It was as if on some level the world knew what was coming. Like we were trying to prepare ourselves for the horror that lay before us. So when it finally happened, it was a dream we'd summoned into reality. A nightmare made flesh. And yet, there was so much we failed to imagine. So much pain and beauty only a survivor could know.

What do players need to do to prepare for the game
This is an experimental, diceless story-game. All game concepts and rules will be explained at the beginning of the session and characters will be created on the spot.
